NBA 2K24 Best 3-Level Threat Build For SF

3-level or triple threat players can create situations in NBA 2K24 where they can fake a pass, shot or dribble making the life miserable for the defenders.

As the name implies, a 3-level threat or triple threat in NBA 2K24 refers to a player that can create a situation where they can threaten the defenders with either dribble, shoot or pass. These players can hold between their shoulders and knee height with off-hand on the ball. This is one of the scariest fakes in the world of the NBA as the defenders only have a 33% to guess the correct move.

3-level threat players are extremely agile and have mastery over ball control. Their main role is of a playmaker as they can pass the ball around with ease. However, it doesn’t stop here. Triple threat players are also adept at converting mid and long-range shots into 3-pointers. In this guide, we will be creating a 3-level threat build in NBA 2K24 which is influenced by one of the greatest of them all, Kevin Durant.

How to set up 3-Level Threat build

3-level threat or triple-threat players are excellent playmakers and can score 3-pointers from a distance to earn some precious points for the team. They excel at creating space from the defenders and use the best dribbling techniques to pass them with ease. What makes them even scarier is the ball control and the pass accuracy. We will discuss how our build fulfills all the roles we have mentioned here. 

For offense, we are going with 84 points in Driving dunk, 90 points in Mid-range shot and 85 points in Three-point shot. This allows our 3-level threat build in NBA 2K24 to deal massive damage from outside and inside the rim. You can score both 2 and 3-pointers with ease with perfectly placed shots and intelligently utilizing the green windows


For playmaking, we have 75 points in Free throw, 75 points in Ball accuracy and 80 points in Ball handle. This allows you to move the ball across the court and fulfill one of the roles, passing, specifically designated for a triple-threat player. 

For the defense part, we have 82 points in Block, 70 points in Defensive rebound and 75 points in Parameter defense. This allows you to defend the counterattack at your small forward position as you need to be at least an average defender for this position. 

The physical part allows you to conserve your energy and perform better dribbling moves on the court. This is where we cover the final part of the holy trinity of 3-level threat players in NBA 2K24, dribbling. 90 points for Stamina, 80 points for Speed stat, and 78 points for Strength. This makes you almost invincible when it comes to destroying the ankles of your opponents while keeping the ball to yourself.
